Like an aerosol can you feel so compressed
freedom wants to jump out of your chest.
Like a fugitive bound in chains
blood pumping throughout your veins.
Circumstances has dented your zest
looking at the future unimpressed.
Like a piece of butter in heat melted down
the silence of solutions an irritating sound.
Like a tyre without air you’ve fallen flat
always worried about this – worried about that.
Life’s cares have punctured your soul
it has taken full control.
